What’s In a Date? Manufacturing vs. Expiration

As informed consumers, many of our Associates and Customers watch the expiration dates on their product bottles. This is a solid practice and ensures you’re receiving full benefit from your Univera product.

That’s also why we include the Expiration Date. Although the FDA does not require it on the labeling, we choose to include it so you have the best information available. We want you to know your product is well within quality standards. Our Expiration Dates are established to match data which demonstrates the product will still have full potency at that date. Think of it as being like the “Best By” date on the food you buy. Each product has a different shelf life that determines its Expiration Date.

If you aren’t in the practice of looking, here’s what the Expiration (EXP) Date looks like:

Another date you will sometimes hear about is the Manufacturing (MFG) Date which looks like this:

Recently, we had a batch (lot) of Femme Vitale which was stamped with the MFG date instead of the EXP date. These bottles are not expired, please note that the actual Expiration date is 2 years from the Manufacturing date for Femme Vitale. This batch went through all other QC testing and has been approved. We have placed a message on the Femme Vitale product page and have communicated with Associates as needed.
If you have any questions about a Femme Vitale order with the MFG date, please contact Customer Care at customercare@univera.com or call 877-627-4787 in the US and 800-363-1890 in Canada.
